Cloud Defensive – Cloud Optimized Rail

Cloud Defensive’s new COR (Cloud Optimized Rail) is designed from the ground up with light and laser integration in mind. The COR mates closely with the Cloud Defensive OWL giving a nearly integral feel. The CORv2 features a recessed channel in the middle of the top rail that is optimal for remote switches like the Surefire SR-07 and DS-07.

The COR series of rail also feature M-LOK compatibility, integrated QD sling sockets, and makes use of BCM’s barrel attachment system. You can see the full line and learn more at CloudDefensive.com.

Cloud Defensive Optimized Weapon Light – Now Even More Optimized

Cloud Defensive continues to improve their Optimized Weapon Light (OWL). They have given us a sneak peek of the production version that will be 1.2” shorter and 4 oz lighter than the prototype that has already been shown. It will also be powered by the now ubiquitous and potent 18650 rechargeable battery (with no CR123 battery option). Outputs and runtimes are still being tweaked but you can expect somewhere north of 1400 lumens with very impressive runtimes.

You can read up on the OWL at CloudDefensive.com. Keep in mind that this is a developing project and stats are likely to change (improve).

Cloud Defensive Optimized Weapon Light (OWL)

It is hard to beat a well placed pressure pad for activating a weapon light when it comes to ergonomics and ease of use. However, some shooters just don’t want to deal with the wires that come with them. Cloud Defensive (CD) started with a product that made the wires easy to deal with… Now they are doing away with them completely.

The CD OWL is a proprietary weapon light with plenty of fresh ideas baked in. The OWL features an integral offset mount that also serves as a platform for the tape switch-esque pressure pad activation switch. This gives the shooter tape-switch style activation without the wires.

The light also features a quick attach/detach system for the heads and tailcaps. This allows the OWL to be completely ambidextrous, mission configurable, and able to upgraded as LED emitter technology advances. There will be heads available that are optimized for a wider spill beam and heads available with a tighter hotspot to optimize throw. Eventually, there may also be IR heads for use with night vision equipment.

The OWL is currently being tested for output but it is estimated to be putting around 1400-1600 lumens out the front. The switch provides both momentary and constant on functionality. The tail cap also serves as an installation tool and to remove the lens for replacement if necessary.

The OWL is user-programable with multiple modes of operation:

  • Full power, all the time (momentary and constant-on)
  • Full power for momentary, 60% for constant-on. Roughly 960 lumens at 60%
  • 60% power all the time (momentary and constant-on)

You can read more about the OWL at Cloud Defensive’s pre-order page. The first 500 lights are being sold at a reduced price and are expected to be delivered in July.

Sneak Peek: Cloud Defense LCS with Integrated Light Mount

Cloud Defensive gave a sneak peek of a new version of the Light Control System that features a direct mounting option for Surefire Scout pattern lights. The new LCS prototype, the LCS-DM, will have a special direct mount panel that mounts in place of the standard cable routing panel. This allows this modification to be backwards compatible with all current generation LCS units.

The new LCS DM will be available as a package that includes the DM panel and standard panel. The DM panel will also be available separately. The pricing is expected to be around $15 for the panel whether purchased separately or added to a package.
